We have requirement to send mail from MII to key users whenever there is specific message is failed in SAP MII, so we need to configure the mail server into the SAP MII. After getting details from the team about the Mail server now its our turn to configure the server into the MII so while doing this job we can’t find much of information on the internet.

After multiple times trying, we were finally able to figure it out so here we are helping the community with our experiments. Please read this blog for configuring the Mail server in SAP MII.

It has three steps in MII as below:

  • Configure the Mail server.

  • Configure the Credentials in credential stores for sending Mails.

  • Testing the application.

    Configure the Mail Server

  • Go to the SAP MII home ->Data Services ->Connections

  • Click on create button and give name and select connection type as mail from dropdown and click on OK:
